First-time moms know and understand that sleep deprivation is in their future. There’s no way around it. The baby will need to eat and get a diaper change every few hours for the first several weeks. But I find that most new moms don’t fully understand the extent of that sleep deprivation, and just how much it affects their world.
Research shows us that chronic sleep deprivation has a severe impact on our cognitive, physical, and emotional functions (which is basically everything). So getting your baby to sleep is of UTMOST importance.
Talking with me is Eva Klein, the founder of My Sleeping Baby and the Sleep Bible program. After experiencing the debilitating effects of chronic sleep deprivation from her middle child, Eva was inspired to help families overcome their own sleep challenges.
In our conversation, she shares more about her story and what led to her rude awakening, her top tips for moms with newborns, and even more on how to approach sleep training at any age, plus its benefits.
Some big takeaways are:
Your baby’s sleep is so important, and so is YOURS! I’ve said it before, but when moms fill their cups with what they need to function in a healthy way, everyone in the family benefits. If you’d like to learn more about sleep training, and how Eva works with her clients, visit the links below!
